Scottish Shorts

  • 109 mins

Scottish shorts - some brand new, some you’ve seen before.

Scotland’s rich and successful heritage of short filmmaking has collected awards and featured at festivals across the globe. Titles have dealt with important social issues and many have offered moments of surprising hilarity, clearly exemplified in this selection. Whether it’s the laugh out loud humour of David Cairns’ wonderful Cry For Bobo, or the subtle humour of Blyth Duff’s delivery in Patrick Harkins’ Sarajevo, this programme of Scottish shorts shows Scotland’s sense of humour is alive and well
